Moving teeth - Are they a cause for concern?
The tooth should be firmly and firmly embedded in the gum and kept in the bones of the jaw or jaw thanks to the roots. Sometimes, however, some patients feel or even are convinced that their permanent teeth are moving in their mouth. What to do in this situation? Do we have any reason to worry?
Moving teeth is a disease
While chewing, chewing, and even talking, we can notice a wobbly tooth. Moving teeth is not a normal, commonly occurring phenomenon, so a patient with such a problem should consult a dentist as soon as possible during a follow-up visit. This will allow you to take appropriate treatment, restore the stability of the teeth and prevent them from losing.
Moving tooth is a sign of the so-called. The dental floss, which consists in swinging the clinical crown of the tooth relative to the bone of the alveolar process. If the tooth is moving and it is a permanent tooth, do not separate it yourself. It is unlikely that he will be able to save him. Ideally, at the moment when we notice moving teeth, go to a dentist who, using appropriate methods, will assess the degree of swing of the tooth. It is used for:
- Static measure of mobility, that is, the tilt of the tooth that the doctor gives in millimeters,
- Dynamic measurement of mobility, using a mechanoelectronic device, so-called. Perotestu.
Moving tooth constant - what is the reason for this?
The movement of the teeth can be due to various reasons. Among them are:
- periodontal lesions resulting from bite injury or orthodontic treatment (include changes in ligaments around the root of the tooth);
- Changes in the size of the root surface, resulting from complications after orthodontic treatment, after mechanical injury or after inflammation,
- deformation of the alveolar process after bite, mechanical injury, or as a result of tooth grinding, ie bruxism,
- Positioning of the pivot point - after orthodontic treatment or as a result of bruxism, parodontosis,
- Deformation of the hard tooth as a result of caries complications, endodontic treatment or mechanical injury.
